John Kasich, the current governor of Ohio, has been suspected of having presidential ambitions, just waiting for the right moment to join the vast throngs of Republican elected and non-elected people who think they have what it takes to do the job. He has been coy about expressing his ambitions openly but he just gave an indication that he is seriously considering it by taking an action that is blatant pandering to the religious nutters.
He has created a mentoring program for students in Ohio, but for any school district to get a piece of the $10 million allocated, they have to partner with a faith-based organization. This requirement was not part of the legislation that was passed but was added by him unilaterally at the last minute.
He is clearly inviting a legal challenge, likely hoping that it will elevate his standing with the religious base as a fighter for Christians even if he loses the case, as is likely. He may be hoping that this will compensate for the anger that he caused among the right by his acceptance of the Medicaid expansion part of Obamacare.
